EC 22.214.171.124 - Glucan 1,6-α-glucosidase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
- Hydrolysis of (1→6)-α-D-glucosidic linkages in (1→6)-α-D-glucans and derived oligosaccharides
Hydrolysis is accompanied by inversion at C-1, so that new reducing ends are released in the β-configuration. Dextrans and isomaltosaccharides are hydrolysed, as is isomaltose, but very slowly. The enzyme from some sources also possesses the activity of EC 126.96.36.199 (glucan endo-1,3-α-glucosidase).
